Destiny 2: It’s like a space opera meets a loot-fest, with a side of player-versus-everything. You’ll shoot aliens, loot shiny gear, and occasionally yell at your screen. All in a day’s work for a Guardian.

Destiny 2, developed by Bungie, is a free-to-play online first-person shooter game that was originally released as a pay-to-play game in 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows. It has since been released on Google Stadia, PlayStation 5, and the Xbox Series X/S platforms. This review is based on feedback from players across various platforms including Reddit, Twitter, Steam Community, Xbox community, and PlayStation community.
